Default quill question and eye question

So dia is doing great after my dog tried to eat her. But tonight I noticed she has a pocket of pus on her hip area. She is definitely quilling and has tons of quills growing in all over. She has a few red irritated spots which I assume are ingrown quills but this spot is big. What should I do? I cant upload the pic from my phone because its to big and I dont know how to resize on my phone.

The other day while anointing kept looking like she was poking her eye with a quill but it didn't bother her she just kept going. The next day both eyes were squinting. There was no discharge or staining. That night she was fine. Today one eye is squinting but the other is fine. Should I be worried?

I would take her in to the vet soon for the pocket of pus on her hip. That was where one of the dog-caused wounds was, so you want to make sure there's nothing bad going on. You can ask the vet to examine the other red spots that may be ingrown quills, and see if there's anything to do for those. And you can have him/her look at her eyes as well.
